  • August 27th, 1747 (New Marblehead, ME.)
  • August 27th, 1747 (New Marblehead, ME.)
  •  Late 1747 (Canada)
  • This fine fellow's bid starts at 100 British pounds!
  • 20-30 Indians raided the settlements of New Marblehead and attacked two young men by the names of Willaim Boulton and William Maxfield. (History: New Marblehead)
  • Late 1747 (Traveling Over Seas to Boston, ME.)
  • Quickly now! I want them all dead!
  • Hurry men! Fire the cannons!
  • Boulton and William were armed with muskets but as they were reloading the Indians rushed them and made them their prisoners. Maxfield held back his fire, giving him time to run instead of reloading and he escaped. (Economics: Guns)
  • Late 1747 (At Master Wallace's House In Boston, ME.)
  • Go fetch me tea, and make it snappy!
  • Boulton was taken to Canada and sold to a French Naval officer. He was put on board a ship in the capacity of a servant. (Economics: Trade, Selling) (Government: Slavery)
  • Late 1747 (At Master Wallace's House In Boston, ME.)
  • Shortly after they set out the ship was attacked by a neighboring English ship. Boulton and his previous master were captured and taken to Boston. Boulton's new master became Lieutenant Wallace, of the English ship. (Geography: Traveling)
  • On one occasion Wallace ordered Boulton to make him some tea. The master had recently purchased an entire pound of tea at the very best quality. Since Boulton had grown up in New Marblehead, he had never seen tea before. (Culture: Tea)
  • Of course sir, yes! Right away!
  • Boulton, not knowing what damage he would cause, poured the entire pound of tea into a kettle, poured in hot water, and lit the stove on fire. When the kettle started to boil the tea sprayed everywhere creating a giant mess. (Culture: Tea)
